Three students arrested on felony firearm charges

Three NMU students were arrested after allegedly going on a shooting spree throughout Marquette.

NMU students Seth Warren Gustafson, 19, Justin Robert Zyburt, 19 and Jay Yung Oberg, 20, were arrested April 26 on three-count felonies including one count of Malicious Destruction of Personal Property; $1,000 or more but less than $20,000, one count of Weapons – Felony Firearm – Pneumatic Gun and one count of Weapons – Firearms – Possession of a Loaded Firearm in or upon a vehicle.

All three charges stem from an April 24 incident in which police say the three men were shooting windows out of cars with a pneumatic gun. The Marquette City Police and Marquette County Sheriff’s Department received over thirty reports of damaged houses, cars and outbuildings in the city and Marquette Township.

Total bond was set at $3,500 each for Gustafson, Oberg and Zyburt.
